  • New team, same attitude in Lady Cat opener

    The changes were apparent when the starting lineups were announced to open the season last Thursday for the Anderson County girls’ basketball team.

    It would have been easy for anyone to look for some of the group that played in three state tournaments over a five-year stretch to come to the Lady Bearcats’s aid. But those young ladies have gone their separate ways to various colleges.

  • Currens blisters Garrard for 34, grabs school long-ball mark

    Kaci Currens blistered the nets at Garrard County for nine 3-pointers and 34 points as Anderson County rolled past the Lions, 80-56, Saturday afternoon.

    Anderson evened its record 1-1 and gave head coach Clay Birdwhistell his first varsity win.

    Currens’ bombing eclipsed the Anderson girls’ basketball record of eight threes, previously held by Makenzie Cann. Currens tied the Anderson County school record, boys or girls, for 3-pointers in one game. Austin Cummins hit nine against Shelby County in 2013.

  • CUMMINS FEASTS ON EAST

    Austin Cummins had one of those nights to remember but East Jessamine will be trying to forget.

    Cummins blistered the nets for 45 points, the most ever scored by an Anderson County boys’ basketball player, as the Bearcats defeated East Jessamine, 78-69, Thursday night in Nicholasville.

    Cummins bagged six 3-point shots in 14 attempts and hit 10-of-16 attempts inside the arc. If not for a cold night at the free throw line, where Cummins hit only 7-of-12 shots, Cummins could have flirted with the all-time Anderson County record, boys or girls.

  • Carmichael honored

    Anderson County quarterback Zachary Carmichael has been named the Class 5A, District 6 Player of the Year in a vote of the district’s coaches. Carmichael, a senior, accounted for 2,772 yards for the Bearcats this season. He led Anderson in rushing with 761 yards in 149 attempts. He also threw for 2,011 yards, completing 104-of-191 passes. He was intercepted 12 times. Carmichael also accounted for 28 touchdowns – 23 passing, five rushing – and kicked six extra points in eight attempts.
